At the same sitting, we opened a 96 Opus and a 97 Insignia. Insignia blew doors on the Opus....
We were told this would be a great wine, so we took it to Palm Springs and had it at our favorite restaurant (Andrieno's) for our 25th anniversary. It was truly wonderful, full and smooth with great berry aftertaste. we let it breathe about 30 minutes and really prefer it to the Silver Oak we had last year.
I just had a bottle the other day. It blew me away. This is not the single best Cali Cab/Cab blend I've had. But it is one of the best, and it does everything I want it to do. It has layers of fruit -- mostly dark, but with and overlaying barry component. It is aged in the right amount of high-quality oak for my tastes. And there is more than adequate earth and terrior subtlety. I had this two nights after a bottle of '99 Bryant (infanticide) and prefered this.
We had this wine the other night and it was delicious. Possibly the best Insignia ever made? Be patient as this will continue to evolve for many many years.
Very well structured, sweet and deep wine but not yet reached to other classics. Needs additional patience for the flavor to come out from your palate. Very good wine.
I opened a bottle last night and I told that wine to jump high and it sure did!!
This is a very good wine, but I prefer the 1995 Silver Oak.
Excellent wine, but probably better with more time.
Had this at Winery in July, 2000. Wine had just been opened. Very closed. Let it sit while we discussed with rep. After about 30 minutes, the wine began to show some berry and cigar notes. However this is going to need a long long time to mature. Not their best, especially at their price.
